The veterinary team has continued to manage Bald Eagle #21-1030's significant carpal injuries this month; these wounds have proven to be very challenging, given the high-tension area and movement of the bird's "wrists". On July 21, the veterinary staff anesthetized the eagle to carefully debride the wounds and resuture them closed. Treatment will continue, though the bird's prognosis is guarded.
